This post, and the Far From Home trailer contain major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.
Just when I thought I could start to think about the events of Avengers: Endgame without crying, the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer dropped and brought with it a reminder that I most certainly can NOT. The first fifteen seconds alone did me in. At the same time, there’s something I find comforting about seeing that Marvel isn’t missing a beat. The Infinity Saga may have come to a close, but there’s still a whole lot in store for the MCU. And we may have gotten our first look at where it may be going next, because we’re getting a multiverse, people!
All the Tony Stark references have me like 😭
I wasn’t kidding before. That first shot of Peter looking at the Iron Man mural and talking about how much he misses Tony got me misty-eyed immediately, because damn it, I miss him too. Then it got even worse.
LOOK AT HIS EYES ALL PUFFY AND RED FROM CRYING. Same, Peter. The shot that made me sob out an audible “Noooooo” was this one,
because they’re Tony’s.
Thank God for Nick Fury
The trailer isn’t entirely depressing however, and Far From Home looks like it’s going to have the same sense of fun as Homecoming before it. Happy’s “New plan!” line at the very end actually made me laugh out loud. Having a thought out plan is all well and good, but sometimes everything goes to shit and you just gotta wing it. I’m also a huge fan of the way Zendaya portrays MJ’s dry and sarcastic sense of humor, so I’m thrilled to see her again. (It’ll probably be addressed, but we have to presume that MJ, Ned, and the rest of Peter’s friends were dusted along with him after The Snap, since they’re all still in high school and on this trip with him.)
Wherever Nick Fury goes, some truly spectacular one-liners follow and this one is an instant classic.
I truly wish that were more applicable to every day life, because I want to be able to use it on the regular.
BRING ON THE MULTIVERSE
A long held fan theory has now been confirmed. A multiverse, and all the possibilities it holds for these movies going forward, is official. Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is introduced to Peter as Mr. Beck, who may be dressed in an ensemble that looks similar to what we’re used to seeing on Asgardians (apart from that crazy fishbowl helmet), but is actually from Earth. Just not ours.
Thanos may have been killed twice in, but you can’t deny that the bastard is still quite the influencer. His Snap “tore a hole in our dimension,” and fans are about to find out exactly what that entails. I don’t think it means that we’re somehow going to get back everyone that we lost during Endgame. Characters were given poignant and definitive endings, and those aren’t going to be undone a few months later. We’ll get more clues when Spider-Man: Far From Home is released on July 2nd and shortly after that at Comic Con, when, let’s be honest with ourselves, we’re all still going to be devastated about Tony Stark.
